Nor-Am Cold Storage, a public, full-service refrigerated warehouse operation, celebrated the opening of their new state-of-the-art 148,000-square-foot facility located in Dodge City, Kansas. State and local leaders were in attendance to celebrate the opening, including Gov. Laura Kelly.
The new freezing, storage, and processing location, built by Tippmann Innovation, is the latest expansion of Nor-Am’s business. The facility is equipped with modern freezing equipment, high-density racking, semi-automated pallet shuttle technology with nearly 17,000 pallet positions, and a 50,000-square-foot processing area. “We believe this new facility not only enhances Nor-Am’s existing food-supply-chain infrastructure but also has a direct positive impact on the local economy by adding approximately 90 essential jobs to the area,” said Scott Albers, President for Nor-Am Cold Storage.
Sam Tippmann, Principal at Ti, a company that has developed several projects for Nor-Am during the past 20 years, added: “On behalf of Ti, we couldn’t be more excited to deliver this modern facility to Nor-Am and to the community. We know it will be efficient and effective in meeting the market demands of Nor-Am and their customers, now and into the future.”
